Now Dandi March in US against corruption in India

It is so obvious from the postings here that most of you are young or left India many years back. India did have its revolution, not Egypt type but Indian type. Jay Prakash Narayan (Popularly known as JP) , at the time of emergency had started a great movement. He got his inspiration from Navnirman agitation in Gujarat, which culminated in ouster of corrupt CM of Congress. Cost: More than 300 students died. However, Indira destroyed JP’s health during the emergency days when he was jailed and unfortunately, he died soon after his release before he can provide guidance and direction to the country. JP movement was, after his demise, hijacked by Laloo (Yes, he is product of that movement) kind of people and nadir reached with V.P. Singh dividing country on caste lines. The damage inflicted by V.P. Singh was immense and I guess India would have the suffering for quite a few years more.

In last 100 years, it is Gujarat that has provided leadership and guided the country. Gandhiji and Sardar Patel were the stars. Now also Narendra Modi has established his credentials as very efficient CEO. If Indians were to listen to him, things would change very rapidly. Unfortunately, young generation in India are literate but “uneducated” (Yes, there is a hell of difference in being literate and educated) as they have been brought up under |Nehruvian education system. I regularly interact with young generation as I am still in contact with quite a few young people as I was a guest lecturer with three different prestigious institutions in India before I migrated to Canada. Young Indians get high on Cricket and Bollywood movies. Their span of general knowledge and desire to obtain extra curriculum knowledge is extremely limited. Young people can bring a change but sadly Indian Youth lacks the vision. Before you guys start criticizing me, let me make it clear that it is not that Indian Youth has no talent. In a country of billion people, quite a few are very smart and brilliant people and it conforms law of averages. What I want to emphasize is that a very huge number are extremely limited in their vision and knowledge. They are incapable of articulating their views on diverse subjects like political system, economics or religion. However, I DO believe that revolution would happen but only after India would have huge problems which should and would surface in 10 years when the chickens come home to roost, that is to say when India;s foreign debt would be huge and unserviceable like Greece or Ireland. That is when MMS and Sonia would have fled the country after milking it dry or would be dead. I guess that would be perhaps too late.

At the cost of digressing from the subject, I would like to state here the difference between acting smart and acting like moron. Gaddafi and Mubarak looted their nations and stashed all their wealth in foreign countries. Now with a stroke of a pen, Western countries have appropriated their wealth. These morons killed and looted their countrymen and now other countries would enjoy the fruits. I think it would happen to MMS and Sonia. I hope God gives them some morality and sense of judgement.

Again how many of u live in India? Do u really know what exactly is happening? No, u don’t.

Has not some BJP netas stashed their money abroad? If u think its not the case, then u should not be commenting on politics. N. Modi may be an honest man, I think he is. Not all others are like him.

Why boycott MNC products? Not sure what this has to do with the discussion.

I have to agree with Nightmare on the present day college youth. Majority are in their own world of mobile phones, SMS and internet. Good for the netas so that these youth don’t bother to vote, illiterate vote for money and netas win! It’s a win-win situation for the netas.

see what your corrupt dearest congress has done to India in last 60 years:down:

भारत दुनिया का पांचवां सबसे बड़ा कर्जदार
नई दिल्ली। देश की मजबूत अर्थव्यवस्था का ढांचा विदेशी कर्ज पर टिका है। कम से कम विश्व बैंक की एक रिपोर्ट के आधार पर तो यही निष्कर्ष निकाला जा सकता है। विश्व बैंक की ग्लोबल डेवलपमेंट फाइनेंस 2010 रिपोर्ट में 20 कर्जदार देशों में भारत को दुनिया का पांचवां सबसे बड़ा कर्जदार बताया गया है। वहीं, रूस ने सबसे ज्यादा विदेशी कर्ज ले रखा है। लोकसभा में एक सवाल के जवाब में वित्त मंत्री प्रणब मुखर्जी ने यह जानकारी दी है।

इस रिपोर्ट के मुताबिक सितंबर, 2010 को समाप्त तिमाही में भारत का विदेशी कर्ज 13 लाख 32 हजार 195 करोड़ रुपये था, जबकि मार्च, 2010 में यह 11 लाख 84 हजार 998 करोड़ रुपये रहा था। प्रणब के मुताबिक इन कर्जो में 77.7 प्रतिशत कर्ज लंबी अवधि और 22.3 फीसदी कर्ज छोटी अवधि के हैं। रिपोर्ट में कर्ज लेने वाले देशों में रूस के बाद चीन, तुर्की और ब्राजील का स्थान है।

AFAIK you have also recently moved back there. Most of us have lived in India, We all know the culture of India, the problems in India, We all visit India once in every couple of years, Most importantly, we all do care for India, otherwise we would not even spend valuable canadian time on this discussion. I may look like moron to you (being in the west and talking about India) but the fact is the fact.

As you said, you like what Ramdev baba says, you even contributed financially,
BUT you are not following him. You want baba to do all the work of improving the country and don't want do your part as an Indian. Boycotting MNCs is one of his agenda that baba wants Indians to follow for the better future of Indians.
As I reminded you a quote from MKG in my earlier comment, Be the change that you want to see in the world. I am not saying you alone can change the world. If you follow (boycotting MNCs) and educate others to follow, others will follow and educate others. Every single drop of water counts to become the Ocean. Don't take it personally, I am just trying to change your views of thinking so you can do the same to other Indians.

Listen to the following two lectures on this link.
http://www.rajivdixit.com/?p=340
1) Sanghathan ki maryada evam siddhant
2) Videshi companiyo ki loot evan swadeshi ka darshan

We all know Pepsi and Coke are nothing but concentrated acid, and they are American companies, Their pro-tax profit margin is 41% (this is just on paper) so every 100 Rs you spend on them, 40 Rs (approx. 1 dollar) goes in USA. Myself being in Canada, I stopped consuming them after realizing these facts. There's lot more I can write, but I am time bound.

Very good work jigz787 :up:

I am also trying my best not to buy cola/pepsi as it is unhealthey .
when it comes to food I go to Indian Grocery stores or buy stuff made in Canada, just to support local economy.
In my Opinion NRI's are way More patriotic Indian and more close to their motherland than those who lives in India.
see the awarness spread by Canadian desi's/American Desi's and other NRI's.
Dandi march in USA is one example How NRI's love India and care,
many other NRI's(individuals) working on daily basis spending their precious time on net to make people aware of corruption/black money and other problems in Inida.
in other hand our brothers in India busy in buying new mobile phones/ finding new girlfriends in chat rooms/watching cricket etc etc

We Love Canada(our karm-bhoomi) we love India(our Janam bhooi), we genuinely more care and worry about India in comp to those who living there or just moved back and started praising corrupt congress.:down:

What we are seeing here, is a crisis in the Identity of the Indian Man – Which was a much sought and well calculated outcome of evil seeds sown by the British. Go dig any library - ask History and it will reveal that right from Antiquity, Aryavart; Bharat; India has been the beacon of knowledge, wealth & prosperity for all. Accounts of travellers to India are full of her admiration. Here is the letter from Lord Macaulay to the British Parliament that shows how they were scheming to break India apart – Please read each word:

http://pixa.us.s3.amazonaws.com/images/504/19250143.jpg" target="_blank">http://pixa.us.s3.amazonaws.com/images/504/19250143.jpg</a>


Furthermore, Macaulay had released a memo and it clearly depicts the intention. He wanted to create such Indians that look like Indians but in liking, thinking and all other aspects, are more British than the British themselves. In a letter written to his father he says, “I am trying to develop such a system that will produce ‘Black Englishmen’. These people will feel proud in deriding their own culture. This will destroy Indian culture. Even if we have to leave India in certain circumstances, these ‘Black Englishmen’ will continue serving our purpose.”

Now naturally, most Indians are completely oblivious to their own history, their own Identity. The Indian education system, civil administration system & even the National constitution is not Indian. Do you think the National anthem is for Indians? NO! It was sung in praise of the British! Our soldiers give their lives for us and what do they salute? The F***** India Gate – Which is a tribute to all those who served the British and died while fighting Indians. What is the Parliament House? Rashtrapati Bhavan? All made by British to RULE India – What kind of sick people painstakingly maintain symbols of slavery & tyranny – no other country other than India. It took us fifty years to change the name Bombay. When USA won their freedom from British – they changed everything there is to change – KM to Mile, Kg to Lbs, Right hand drive to left etc.

What baba Ramdev is doing is great, yet not something new - Many have come before him – some to fight degraded customs like Sati; some to eradicate illiteracy etc. He is doing precisely what is required in our times. He is trying to wake us up and make us realize our lineage. The civilization that was once an epitome of knowledge, science, art, architecture, agriculture, industry, medicine, laws, philosophy and religion is now in dire straits. We have failed in almost every area – corruption, economy, social integrity, civic infrastructure, education, public health, industry, pollution etc. etc. My grandfather died as a freedom fighter – though he died after the so called “Indian Independence”, he did not see freedom – he told me before dying, “that this is not the country we envisaged. Our dream is still unachieved – your generation must achieve it”.

So, I ask, did the British win? Will Hindus & Muslims keep fighting? Will we keep pretending to be happy while trudging daily life hurdles? Will people die of hunger while grain stocks perish in FCI warehouses? Will another cold wave in North India kill yet many more? I say NO! No to it all! We are with Baba Ramdev, with Rajiv Dixit, with Anna Hazare and all the great souls who want to re-build this great Nation; to make this world a better place. This is not a matter of Hindu or a Muslim fanatic or East vs West or English vs Hindi or BJP vs Cong. The task is now on our shoulders and we must work as one – there are many, many daunting tasks to accomplish – and Baba Ramdev Ji has taken the first few steps for us.

Every Indian must first listen to Rajiv Dixit Jis lectures available here:

http://www.rajivdixit.com/?cat=12" target="_blank">http://www.rajivdixit.com/?cat=12

I don’t advocate to follow him blindly. But when you have tested his facts to be undeniably true, you must then Join Baba Ramdev Ji’s efforts. Remember, everyone’s contribution – no matter how small will one day see our dream fulfilled.

Shubhaste Pantha Na Santu. JSK.

Kudos to Jigz, Mgupta and others......Spread the word. we will have to brainstorm on how we can do more.
